There is a saying that “a person in love sometimes don’t know have IQ anymore”. When falling into a sweet love, some men or women will become more naive and always think about giving everything to each other.
Sometimes one would be in a situation of not having enough money to lend and going as far as taking a loan, Only to realise later that you have been deceived and both the person you love and money is gone.
In China, Hubei, there was a woman who fell in love with a “big boss”, but the other party frequently asked her to borrow him money. When she ran out of money to, her boyfriend will often be hard to contact, leaving her only with debts.
Ms. Peng from Fancheng, Xiangyang, Hubei, made friends through the Internet in July this year. She met a big boss who claimed to be an engineer and had cooperative relations with many well-known companies.
The two started chatting on the Internet and later confirmed their relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend. After several months, her boyfriend asked her to borrow money time and time again, and she lent all of her savings to him.
The reason for borrowing money is also very simple. Either there is a problem with the project contract, or the worker has an accident, etc. After lending out all her savings, her boyfriend even encouraged her to borrow money from money lenders or bank loans.
Every time her boyfriend asked where to borrow money, Ms. Peng will submit loan applications, and going as far as asking for money from her relatives and friends. In a span of two months, Ms. Peng lent 1.15 million yuan (About S$231,000)
She had fantasized about marrying her boyfriend in the future, but after she owed more and eventually ended heavily in debt.
Ms. Peng eventually asked her boyfriend to repay some of the money. But her boyfriend went missing on her.
At this time, she still had hope, thinking that her boyfriend was encountering some difficulties, and wanted to find her boyfriend through various channels, but she couldn’t find her for a month, and the pressure of repayment on the loan was particularly high.
She eventually contacted the Police.
After checking the chat records of the two parties, the police came to the conclusion that it may be a case of fraud. After several days of investigation, they found the man and took him back to the police station for interrogation.
At the police station, the man also explained his crime. It turned out that he was not a big boss, but an unemployed vagabond. At first, he wanted to borrow some money to invest online, but he lost all of it.
